A Culturally Healthy Reporter Knows Objectivity is Dead

With the Cultural Terrorist "President" Trump Loose in America the News media is faced with a choice regarding their views on democracy and the role of truth and morality in news production. Lewis Wallace is an example of a Culturally Healthy  reporter, who wrote a piece entitled Objectivity is dead and i'm ok with it. It is a must read for all writers, reporters and readers, 

Here is what it says:

Like a lot of people, I’ve been losing sleep over the news of the last week. As a working journalist, I’ve been deeply questioning not just what our role is in this moment, but how we must change what we are doing to adapt to a government that believes in “alternative facts” and thrives on lies, including the lie of white racial superiority.

link to piece

I am confident you found the piece thought provoking. The question is, what time is it and what is the state of your Cultural Health? Or for some, the more important question might be what should the state of your Cultural Health be in these challenging times?

After President Obama's election and the risE in the nation's Cultural Health that it seemed to reflect, I put my pen down for a while. However, the Trump tragedy and Wallace's piece is challenging me to pick it up again.


Here is a suggestion. If you hit the tab above on the right marked test it will take you to the Harvard Implicit Association Test for your preference regarding African Americans vs European Americans. I suggest that this is a good way to begin to answer the above questions regarding the status of your cultural health. 

After you take the test comeback and let us know how you did and what you think.

Cultural Health requires ACTION to gain traction.

EverNote Takes 100 Million Users Back to Horse & Buggy Life

On Febuary 7, in this year 2015 of the Internet, Evernote has Broken a promise to its users by canceling HELLO. in doing so they have said good bye to some of the Remember Everything here philosophy its 100 million customers brought into. ๐Ÿ‘น

These are Aunk's comments in the Evernote community that I have reproduced here as an open letter to Evernote. ๐Ÿ˜‡

Remember when Microsoft "upgraded" windows and left out the START button? Here we go again. I once made a large investment in a Microsoft group. They lost all my data. I have never spent another Nickel with Microsoft. We have come to expect mediocre from Microsoft as they try to catch the perfectionists at Apple. ๐Ÿ‘น

But for an Apple developer to make such an error is disturbing at best. ๐Ÿ˜…

I don't believe you folks screwed up HELLO! I was a 100% EV  premium paying fan and have recommended U to countless people. Now I am an 80% concerned user. ๐Ÿ˜ณ

Hello was the best acquaintance capturing app in the history of mobile computing. I Hand my IPhone to a smart acquaintance they put in their particulars in hit done and my info goes to them. 


Now when I need to remember an acquaintances name (I have a photographic memory for faces but not names) I Scan the beautifully crafted minimalist HELLO interface for the face I am thinking of and his/her name and where I met them is right their. 


and you screwed That uP, WoW! ๐Ÿ™Š๐Ÿ™‰๐Ÿ™ˆ

I was happy to find this community so that I can express myself. ๐Ÿ˜ต I have read every word of every comment here. 

I hope you understand that when you unnecessarily piss off good customers 90% of them will not take the time to tell u but will tell 100 friends how you trashed their work and screwed ๐Ÿ“ตthem. 

The "good" news is my acquaintances are in EVN somewhere and u seemed to have taken the Legacyanyone can do it old fashioned business card scanner section out of the great HELLO and put it in EVN, leaving out the futuristic valuable parts of HELLO! 

What U have done is like inventing and selling me an automobile ๐Ÿš•to replace my horse ๐Ÿด๐Ÿ‘…and then taking it away from me and giving me and automated horse, WTF. 

I have tried this card scanner and it seems to do that using the card option on Apple's Camera but seems to do little else. And/or only starts with a scan. I.e. You can change information only if u scan something. 

It seems to only work for Business people ๐Ÿ‘”๐Ÿ”ชwith a Business card. That is not what was promised. 

I and millions like use to drive a round in our cars and remember most of the people we met. Now we and our prodigy have been returned to the day of the horse and buggy. ๐Ÿ’ค

If U really mean to move this mirical memory aid into the main app. Then tell us, your still loyal customers, this is what u are going to do, and GET BUSY! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ‘€

1. What EVN notebook is my Hello data in (yes I synced it). ๐ŸŽฏ
2. Can I merge my "hello" notebook and this new business card notebook. Or can I place these two notebooks in a "stack". 
3. How can I use the "Business card scanner " to not scan anything but just allow my acquaintance (who doesn't have a business card) to just enter his information.
4. Can you get the person who invented this automated horse ("Business card scanner") to at least put the quick face scanning hello interface on top of his EVN horse so it at least looks like the car U gave me and promised I could keep. 

I will add a question here that I did not Put in the community. 

5. Who is Evernote's Compitition?๐Ÿ‘‚

Masque Attack: Why Your iPhone is Probably Safe - Happy Veteran's Day

 "Masque Attack sounds like an ominous threat to the iPhone and iPad because it lets attackers replace legit apps with their own malicious versions. Getting those on your iOS device, however, involves some trickery and interaction on your part. The security flaw is serious, but it isn't likely to hit you."

Aunk's Commentary:

Another example of why Iphone is the mobile computing gold standard in security.

There is not an abundance of big security holes for the bad guys to exploit becauce the ecosystem is a contained well managed envronment.

You will note from this piece that anytime there is the slightest hint of a hole, the globle experts report it publicly, as they also probably have Iphones.

Contrast this with so called "Open" ecosystems like windows and Android. 95% of all malware is targeted at this environment.

As an American on this Veterens Day I am reminded of my constitutional right to be secure in my papers and property. No on in moble computing does a better job of securing that right for me then Job's Apple.

Shout out to my Dad Marlin on this Veteren's Day. Hetep and Respect Dad.

iPhone Getting More Culturally Healthy - New Emoji Coming

The first Black Emoji will come June 2015

 There are 59 different types of food Emoji, but the pictorial smartphone language has been severely lacking in other areas—specifically when it comes to racial diversity."

Racially Diverse Emoji Are Finally Coming to Your iPhone 
via Blog this'

Aunk's commentary:

This is an interesting development as technology shrinks our world. The net effect has been more culturally healthy world citizens. This is one more example of how tech can reduce Cultural Poisoning by emulating in cyberspace the ethnic diversity that is the reality here on earth.

Google Flu Trends Found to be in Error

Without specifically acknowledging criticisms about its accuracy, Google announced Friday it would be making some changes to Google Flu Trends, the service that uses search data to track and predict flu outcomes in the United States and around the world. Specifically, Flu Trends will stop relying solely on search data to make predictions but will begin to combine that search data, continually, with publicly available data from the CDC."

Aunk's Commentary:
This is another example of the Google Grandiose Mediocre mindset. Google does search, data mining and ads at the highest quality. Google also does a lot of other side things mostly mediocre. So if they do this with machines like the Iphone clone Android stuff what would make us think they would do better with humans then with machines. 

When it comes to health, I would not trust Google as far as I could through them.

'via Blog this'

Google Flu Trends will supplement crowdsourced approach with CDC data | mobihealthnews:

On a positive note, notice the graph at the top that shows flu season. Not that people in America get colds and the "Flu" when sun light (Vitamin D) goes down and cold weather goes up. If memory serves me their is no flu season in Africa near the equator. The moral of the story is take your vitamin D in the winter as a cold prophylactic. I (an African American) go from 10,000 in the summer to 15,000 iu's in the winter. I live in the New York City area. This keeps my blood Vitamin D level at 80 to 90 ng ml.

The key hear is that vitamin D dosage if different for every human being depending on melanin content and other factors. You need to find what dose produces your target blood levels. By the way I have not had a cold to speak of in years.

Apple Pay USAA Caused me to Open Chase Checking

I wanted to use Apple Pay on my New IPhone 6+ 128g at Wholefoods. I use USSA for my Apple Account, so piece of cake right? Wrong. USAA card was rejected - your bank has not authorized Apple pay yet. 

So I walked into my local Chase Branch and opened a checking Account. I got a bank card on the spot. Loaded it into my IPhone by taking a picture of it "successfully" in the bank. Went to Wholefoods and used apple pay for the first time that day.

I learned something from this experience. Chase checking and saving accts are more expensive then USAA, unless you keep a lot of money in them "minimums". But they are free if you are military. They also gave me a free Credit card. 

But Chase does not have the expense And category budgeting tools in their Iphone app that USAA has. 

Recommendation: USAA move faster to work with the Gold Standard secure Apple folks. 

I saw your Alert Apple Pay is coming.


USAA is a great bank for military personal and they have and are leading the banking industry in technology. But they don't have offices on the ground were you can go and do things instantly. 

They need to work more closely with the Mobil computing leader Apple so that they don't fall behind in customer service and cause happy customers like me to go to other banks to get services they don't offer. 

I was not happy on Apple Pay Announcement day, with NO USAA. 

To be clear I like USAA they have been very good in customer service. But chase has been more generous in the available credit area and in being right on the technological curve with the ingenuous A Team at apple. So some money that was planned for USAA may now go into Chase so I can learn about them.

Chase is bigger but looking on the net they have a lot of complaints and stories of dishonesty and closing accounts at the first "sign" of trouble. Just the opposite seems to be true of USAA.

As the ancestor's would say "Keep a sharp Eye"
